The outlook for both B2C and B2B human cloud adoption appears rosy. That’s according to the recently released 2017 update to Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) annual report on The Gig Economy and Human Cloud Landscape.
The report showed substantial benefits for the forward-thinking businesses willing to embrace the human cloud model through disruptive technologies like Upwork Enterprise. Even better, these are opportunities that are open to all businesses.
It might be assumed that a majority of human cloud revenue was generated by large enterprise clients. Surprisingly, the report found that “82 percent of human cloud revenue was generated from clients with less than $100 million in annual revenue in 2016.” In contrast, human cloud spend at large enterprise clients amounted to less than 0.5 percent of total program spend on average.
